Perhaps the most exciting aspect of holistic healing is that it combines new scientific discoveries with centuries-old treatments from around the world. At Outreach Health and Wellness, you have access to many holistic therapies that can help you heal from both physical and mental trauma. 

The healthcare industry often falls short of accommodating those seeking alternative treatment methods. Trusted and scientifically-supported therapies remain stigmatized, preventing people from accessing the treatment they need to get better. 

Thankfully, Outreach Health and Wellness provides both information and natural treatment to people suffering from mental illnesses. So what does this treatment entail?

Nature's Best Techniques

There are several ways of treating mental health issues naturally. Our experienced professionals perform these methods after extensive research and study. Here are three of our most popular treatments:

  • B12 Injections: We use these injections to treat a deficiency of the important vitamin, B12. A B12 deficiency can result in fatigue, stomach problems, anemia, neurological changes and more. This deficiency is often linked to mood disorders such as depression.
  • IV Infusions: The use of an IV, or intravenous, injection is the most effective ways of introducing the healthy antibodies to your system. 
  • Medical Cannabis: Cannabis has become less stigmatized as it continues to prove its healing capabilities. There are several methods of ingestion that you can discuss with a practitioner. Regardless, Cannabis is an effective method for treating a wide variety of both physical and mental health issues. 

It's important to determine which therapy methods will work best for you and your specific ailments. This is why we conduct a thorough evaluation to ensure that you get the holistic treatment you need.

Undergo a Psychiatric Evaluation

With the help of a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, we're able to provide you with a thorough diagnosis. This is how we determine what pathway of holistic treatment is best for you. In our evaluation, we discuss a patient's:

  • Family Traits
  • Formative History
  • Medicinal History
  • Social Environment
  • Academic/Work Concerns
  • Psychological/Emotional Wellbeing
  • Traits of Multiple Disorders

Within a 60 to 90 minute session, we can identify your psychological and emotional needs. This allows us to formulate the best possible treatment plan, which would consist of one or more natural healing therapies.

What Mental Illnesses Can We Treat Holistically?

There are many mental illnesses that can benefit from holistic healing methods like medical cannabis and B12 injections. Among those ailments includes:

  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • Anorexia
  • Anxiety
  • Substance Abuse
  • Bipolar Disorder

The extent to which these illnesses respond to cannabis, in particular, can vary. This is why it's important to undergo these holistic healing treatments while consulting a professional practitioner. Additionally, it's ideal to combine natural methods alongside traditional therapy to ensure you're getting everything you need.

Thankfully, these treatments can also have impressive healing capabilities for several physical illnesses as well. This includes:

  • Chronic Pain
  • Glaucoma
  • Dehydration
  • Nausea
  • Seizures
  • Muscle Spasms

Our methods have the ability to treat illnesses from anorexia to seizures to hangovers. It's no surprise that holistic healing is starting to gain some mainstream popularity.
